-How many times do you wash your face daily?
Twice – I wash my face before I go to sleep and after I wake up.

-What skin type do you have? (dry, oily, combo)
Definitely oily and I absolutely hate it!

-What is your current facial wash?
At the moment, I don't really have one. I ran low and last time I was out I completely forgot to buy so to make due I've had to use face wipes. I know it's not the best but until I go shopping, I have no choice :(

-Do you exfoliate?
I do sometimes but I find that it irritates my skin so I tend to skip this.

-What brand do you use?
At the moment I'm really loving my Soap & Glory face wipes and I definitely think I'll be buying more from their skincare range.

-What moisturizer do you use?
At the moment I'm using Asda matte moisturiser. As I have oily skin, this is a god send!

-Do you have freckles?
Yes I do but they're quite faint.

-Do you use eye cream?
I don't use creams but in morning I do use my Garnier under eye roller and that works quite well.

-Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
Yes I do :( I've tried numerous different products but nothing seems to keep them away!

-Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?
Nope but I would like to in the future!


-What foundation do you use?
I'm using my Seventeen Stay Time foundation at the moment but I do also love my Rimmel Stay Matte foundation as well.  Apparently I like things to stay!

-How about concealer?
Amazing if I use the Seventeen foundation, I don't need any concealer but if I wear a different foundation I use the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer!

-Do you know your undertone color?
To be honest I don't. Bad beauty blogger!

-What do you think of fake eyelashes?
I love them but they're a bloody nightmare to put on!

-Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
Yes I do but I have to admit that I don't normally do that :(

-What brand of mascara do you use?
At the moment it's Seventeen but I do love Rimmel.

-Sephora or MAC?
I don't buy high brand make-up but I would love to try MAC.

-Do you have a MAC Pro-card?
I would highly doubt it

-What makeup tools do you use in make up application?
My foundation sponge, a few brushes and eyelash curler

-Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?
I have got them but I normally forget :(

-For the face?
I am trying to definitely use my primers a lot more so yes!

-What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?
I don't use eyeshadow on a daily basis but when I do it's normally just from my MUA Undressed palette.

-Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
I use felt tip! The Collection Extreme eyeliner is my favourite!

-How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
I don't think I've poked my self with my eyeliner since my teenage days. Mascara is another thing though...

-What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
^ I don't tend to use them so much so it's not really something I think of.

-Do you use mineral makeup?
I have got mineral make-up but I have to admit I've only worn it the once. I definitely need to get it back out or I might have to sell!

-What is your favorite lipstick?
It normally changes within seasons but at the moment I'm really loving nude so it has to the MUA matte lipsticks in Fancy Fawn.

-How about lipgloss?
I don't like using lipglosses as I hate getting my hair stuck in it so I don't really have one!

-What is your favorite blush to use?
At the moment I'm loving my Contour kit from Seventeen so I haven't really been using blusher so much. If I do, I use the MUA mosaic blusher!

-Do you buy your makeup on ebay?
I have been known to yes. I like to buy off other ebay users and not so much the ebay stores as they're more than likely to be fake.

-Do you like drugstore makeup?
I love drugstore!

-Do you go to CCO’s? (cosmetic company outlets)
I would love to but I have no idea where the nearest one is to me :(

-Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
Yes I would love to. Up till now, I am 100% self-taught and I would love to learn more about makeup.

-Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
Somedays my make-up looks amazing, other days it looks like my little cousin has been at my face. I'd say I'm average?

-Name a makeup crime that you hate?
Concealer lipstick. I used to be guilty of this from time to time but now I've learned how to use natural nude shade lipsticks and it's definitely so much better!

-Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones?
I do tend to stick to neutrals as I'm more comfortable there. I do tend to wear more colourful lipsticks in the summer though!

-Which celebrity always has great make up?
I don't really look to celebrities for fashion/makeup tips, I look to bloggers! :)

-If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item,what would you use?
My eyeliner. I think I look alien without it!

-Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
I do everyweek. I make it a rule that I never apply makeup on a Sunday and make a big deal about giving my face a day off. I've also made a few sneaky trips to Mcdonalds on a Saturday morning for hangover food with no makeup on!

-Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
No but I honestly think it's a more confidence thing for me. I'd love to feel comfortable without make-up.

-In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
I know most people would say MAC or Nars etc but I personally love highstreet stores. They're a hell of a load cheaper and I think a few certain products can actually give designer brands a run for their shedload of money! To answer the question, my favourite has to be Seventeen!

-What do you think of Makeup?
I really think it shouldn't be the essential in one’s life. I use makeup to make myself feel confident in myself and I wish I didn't need to. In terms of application, I believe the less the better and I think most girls lather on the makeup to hide behind it - I do it myself to an extent. I just wish everyone could learn to love natural beauty!


  1. I agree with feeling confident with makeup I just think it enhances beauty nothing too crazy just natural makeup and something special when going to special events I started using makeup only since I was 21


    1. I am exactly the same :) Natural make-up is far better than layering it all on! xo

  2. I love how fake eyelashes look as well but you worded it so well, they're an absolute nightmare to put on!

    1. Exactly :) Why can't our natural lashes be that perfect then we wouldn't need fake ones ha xo

  3. With false eyelashes I found that the individual ones (like little clumps instead of a band) look much more natural and are easier to put on because you can just place a few on the ends instead of trying to get the whole thing to stick and stay on :)

    1. I have looked at the individual fake eyelashes but they look far too fiddly for me! I'll probably end up sticking them in my eyebrows or around my face than on my actual eye ha xo

  4. Love this tag! It's always interesting to get to know more about the bloggers you follow!
